5 Signs You Need a Bathroom Refurbishment

It looks dated

Tired, worn and outdated – if your bathroom is looking a little lacklustre, it’s probably time for a refresh. An outdated bathroom not only brings the style of your property down, but it also won’t be a big selling point when it comes time to move home.

Old bathrooms, as well as suffering aesthetically, may also be burdened with worn-out equipment along with mould and grime build-up.

It’s always going wrong

Your old bathroom has been working tirelessly for your home for many years – and eventually, it may start showing signs of this long service with breakdowns and operational problems. This can include the formation of damp patches, leaky taps and sluggish drainage.

And after calculating the cost of regular repairs, you may conclude that a refurbishment is actually more cost-effective than continually fixing problems.

It’s time to move house

When it comes time to sell up, you’ll want to impress would-be buyers. An ageing, outdated bathroom might therefore let down the overall look of your home, and even knock some money off your asking price. A new, fresh and modern bathroom will be sure to impress buyers and may even bump up this price.

And even if you don’t want to replace the entire bathroom, freshening the room up with some modern touches can have similar results.

Its layout just isn’t working for you

Perhaps you’re a shower-lover who never takes a bath, and yet the tub is taking up lots of space? Or maybe your accessibility needs have recently changed and your bathroom has become cumbersome to use? Or perhaps your family is growing and you need more storage to accommodate the kids?

Over time, our needs and preferences can change, leaving us with a bathroom that doesn’t quite match up. It might therefore be wise to take an honest look at your bathroom and establish what isn’t working and what solutions can be introduced to make it an enjoyable, convenient space once more.

It gets easily cluttered

A cluttered, untidy bathroom does not equal a relaxing environment. Usually when a bathroom has become too untidy, it’s because it lacks sufficient storage space.

This is something which can be resolved by simple baskets to house your things, or through more structural solutions, such as the introduction of cabinets or smart storage solutions that work for you and how you actually use your space. Here at Ebberns, can work with you to establish what storage solutions will work best for you.
